Our job is to organise a range of opportunities where parents and friends of Grammar boys can get together and support the Sydney Grammar School community in the widest possible sense. Whilst some of our events do raise funds our main objective is to generate goodwill and support for the School by involving parents and friends in a variety of ways.
The funds we do raise go towards the annual Women's Association Scholarship. We also make contributions to assist with books and uniform for boys on means-tested scholarships. Further funds go towards the provision of equipment to sporting groups or clubs as requested.
We run the Grammar Shop, the Weigall canteen, the Second-Hand book sale and we organise volunteers to work in the School tuckshop. Our social events include: College Street Forums; Form I Dinner; Leavers' Lunch; Literary Lunch; Form Drinks Parties and New Mothers' Morning Tea.
We have meetings regularly and our activities are reported in the Grammar Newsletter. We are a volunteer and service-based association, totally dependent on the generosity, dedication and talents of our committee and membership group.
Please feel free to contact the Women's Association at any time especially if you would like to join the committee or have good ideas for us to consider firstname.lastname@example.org.
Membership is open to all mothers and guardians who currently have boys at the School. For membership details please contact Jenny Booth at email@example.com.
We need volunteers in the Tuck Shop, the Grammar Shop and the Weigall Canteen. We encourage Grammar mothers to become volunteers. This is a great way to catch up with friends, meet new people and make an incredibly valuable contribution to the Grammar School community. Please contact us if you can help.
When you buy your son's gear from the Grammar Shop all profits come back to the School. We have everything your boy needs by the way of uniform and sportswear (except for rowing gear) as well as stationery items, crested goods, umbrellas, dog leads and scarves.
Payment can be made by cheque, Visa, Mastercard or cash. Our managers, Jenny Booth and Kim Rossleigh, are experts at dealing with boys especially those who are reluctant to try on clothes! If you are having trouble, send your son in with payment details and they can kit him out.
The shop will purchase second-hand, dry-cleaned, blazers in good condition for re-sale. Other second-hand items can be left at the shop where they will be sorted and accepted as donations to the Women's Association.
The tuckshop is run by volunteers. If you can spare a day a month, or a day a term we would love to see you and so would the boys. There is a great social atmosphere in the tuckshop and, with a very busy schedule, the day flies.
For weekly specials and prices see the INFORMATION above.
This takes place in the first week of December. Boys can deliver books to be sold. The books sell at 50% of their original price. We charge a $2 administration fee for anyone selling more than $30 worth of books. 20% of the sale price goes to the Women's Association and the remainder is sent by cheque to the boy selling the books. This is always a hugely popular event and again depends on volunteers to make it run smoothly.
